This year we are working with RBST to collect more semen from a bull that has been selected mainly for conservation reasons. A Grassroots database search was carried out to find the least related registered bulls, this was followed by conformation inspections; hopefully there will be a new bull available later this year!
Semen has also been successfully taken from Speckles Isaiah, a well bred bull from a solid line of milky Albions and we hope to be able to offer him for sale very soon. (See photo below)
